New luxury leather accessories for stylish men
Twenty8, a new line of fashionable yet timeless leather accessories with a masculine edge, reveals its Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.
Created specifically for fashion-conscious men who exude rugged charm, the newly launched luxury accessories brand Twenty8 releases high-end leather messenger bags, wallets and iPad covers that reflect modern lifestyle needs while remaining classic and elegant in design.
"The energy of this stylish line is stunning," says Dan Vine from Twenty8, whose extensive background in the fashion industry has provided him with a pulse on the trendy male shopper. "Each piece in the contemporary Twenty8 line embodies the four factors consumers look for in a bag - style, design, functionality and price. We have no doubt that Twenty8 will achieve desirability, which is the elusive fifth element successful brands, such as Hermes, Mulberry and Prada, command. “The creation of the Twenty8 brand has been a labour of love for nearly two years, but the line recently received a boost with the discovery of an exceptional source for high-quality, affordable leather. The materials inspired a complete redesign of the initial collection, resulting in distinguished range of business and leisure accessories that appeal to modern men.
From the dual-tone Cognac Leather Holdall to the Leather Business Bag, each product in the Twenty8 line-up features masculine contours, sophisticated hardware and a rugged edge. Twenty8 products will be available for purchase online and from select high-street retailers in Richmond, Henley and Knightsbridge by September.
Several launch events will take place at specialty boutiques throughout the autumn of 2012. Twenty8 plans to release women's accessories, leather jackets and clothing in the future.
Vine acknowledges that providing luxurious leather accessories at an affordable price point is a major focal point of the line. "Luxury does come at a price because of the craftsmanship, time and materials involved," he explains. "However, it does not have to be extortionate. Twenty8 is poised to find a niche for quality men's bags just below the really expensive designer labels but above the lesser-known brand names."
